Hey Stephen,

Seeing we've got our clients connecting to a database over the internet, 
we've implemented a small testing window that will create a large volume 
of records inside of a test table and then read that data back with a 
select query. The table basically has a column that can hold a fairly 
large bit of text and we'll create say 10.000 rows where the text has 
some random lorem ipsum text (I wrote a small lipsum generator so each 
row has unique data).

Creating the data gives a decent metric for effective upload speed, 
reading the data back gives a decent metric for effective download 
speed, and it is a speed more accurate to what your application actually 
is allocated for bandwidth.
